Many of the early settlers of Myersville were farmers of German and English descent who saw the area as a place to establish themselves and continue the farming traditions they brought with them.

From this fertile wilderness they carved out farms where they built mills, grew crops and raised a variety of livestock. The trolley provided farmers the ability to ship goods and produce to more distant locations.

Myersville has retained its rural character and charm while adapting to a newly mechanized world. Agriculture remains an important component of the economy and adds a unique beauty to the surrounding countryside
